By crossing the mandarin Tangerine and the grapefruit Duncan we obtain a hybrid: the mapo, belonging to the Tangelo species, to the Rutaceae family and to the Citrus genus. It is a tree that grows vigorously and very quickly up to even twelve meters in height, characterized by a crown that can expand up to nine meters, with partly strong branches full of thorns but also rather weak branches and roots, many dense, tend to develop in depth. Bees are particularly attracted to the white flowers of this plant, producing honey, as they are pleasantly scented. The flowering period of the mapo occurs around the end of winter / early spring and requires pollinators belonging to its same genus as it is self-sterile. This plant also undergoes the alternation of production.

The fruits weigh from one hundred and thirty to one hundred and ninety grams and are large berries, also called hesperidium. They are characterized by a globular, pear-shaped appearance and a protuberance placed at the upper end of the fruit. The endocarp is covered with a very thin and smooth skin that comes off easily. Furthermore, even when it reaches maturity it has an intense green color. The pulp is divided into very juicy yellow / orange wedges, very fragrant and with acidic hints typical of the mandarin, the presence of seeds is variable.

Climate and terrain

This plant prefers environments with a warm and subtropical climate, with mild and dry winters.

Compared to mandarin it has less resistance to cold fearing late frosts. Between twenty and twenty-eight degrees we have the best thermal oscillation to favor vegetative development and reproduction, when temperatures drop below seven degrees, the winter rest phase begins. The mapo loves sufficiently bright sunny environments that must however be well protected from wind phenomena with windbreak barriers, it adapts to the cultivation soil with good vegetation even on the most sandy and rather calcareous soils but this does not mean that it also prefers fertile soils, of medium texture, drained, with a sufficient quantity of organic substance and due to a sensitivity to water stagnation and iron chlorosis, it does not like compact and excessively calcareous ones.

It is a plant that has a typically overseas origin, since it comes directly from the United States of America, this hybrid can be traced back to the end of the 19th century, it is grown mainly in California and Florida but also in a small part of hectares of Calabria and Sicily in Italy.

Varieties and rootstocks

Mapo is divided into five main cultivars: Minneola, Orlando, Page, Seminole and Sampson. The first is characterized by large fruits, with a protuberance at the upper end, with about seven / twelve seeds and produces fruit every year. Orlando is the cultivar that is also best suited to the cold, it is characterized by the cup shape of the leaves, it produces medium-sized fruits without protuberance and a scarce presence of seeds.

The graft is preferentially used for the propagation of the mapo, the greatest use occurs with the bitter orange and the franc. The franc, also used as rootstock of sweet orange and lemon, resists well to cold temperatures and gummy while the bitter orange boasts a good adaptability to the cultivation soil except for compact ones and allows excellent longevity to the plants , it too is not afraid of the coldest temperatures and also bears parasites for example root rot and the rubbery of the collar but is affected by the dryness and the virus of sadness.

Mapo: Cultivation techniques

Tending the foliage to expand, causing large planting spans, good lighting is required with shorter distances for the bitter orange than for the franc. The full crown globe is the breeding technique that is adopted, with the branches placed on the stem at forty fifty centimeters from the ground. Thanks to it, pruning and harvesting are favored, protecting the mapo from certain climatic situations such as strong winds and sunstrokes, speeding up the start of production thanks to the few pruning operations during farming and preventing the formation of weeds. During the pruning phase, the air circulation is improved by thinning out some dry, weak branches and suckers at the ends of the branches. As for fertilization, it takes place in the winter period, with potassium and phosphorus and by means of nitrogen or foliar fertilization at the vegetative restart. Numerous irrigations are necessary to have an abundance of good quality fruit, although this plant copes fairly with drought. Between the months of October and January, the fruit is manually harvested and used basically for fresh consumption and alternatively for the production of liqueurs and preserves. The mapo plant can also be attacked by some parasites.

Hotel Shilla started operations in March 1979 at the direction of Lee Byung-chul, founder of the Samsung Group. Before 1979, it was the state guest house of Republic of Korea under the Park Chung-hee government. Now, it has been expanding into the commissioned management of fitness facilities as well as into the restaurant business. The Shilla focuses on "the harmony and beauty of modernism and tradition". They have hotels located in Seoul, Jeju, and Suzhou, China.

In January 2008, The Shilla was selected as one of the top 500 hotels in the world by Travel & Leisure. [1]

The Seoul hotel reopened to the public on August 1, 2013 after seven months of renovations, featuring the first year-round outdoor pool in Seoul ("Urban Island") and the Shilla-Sitaras Fitness Center. [2] [3]

Map of Rome: Top things to do & top attractions in Rome

Rome is a beautiful city full of history and culture. Around every corner you'll come across architectural and art treasures. There is so much to see and do it's sometimes hard to know where to start, and how to get the most out of your trip.

To help you out, this guide points you in the direction of the top 20 things to do and see in the city.

Spend a few minutes planning your time in this eternal city to get the most out of its attractions. Don't forget to leave yourself some time for relaxing over a cup of coffee and enjoying al-fresco dining on the flavors of Italy.

1. The Colosseum

The Colosseum must be one of the city's most thrilling sights. As you stare in awe at it, try and imagine it clad in Travertine stone and marble and supporting a huge canvas awning designed to keep the sun off 50,000 spectators.

In its cavernous underground world, gladiators lived and trained and wild animals were caged ready to be raised up to the crowds in pulley-operated lifts.

Its inaugural games were in 80 AD, when 50,000 animals were slaughtered over 100 days. Abandoned in the 5th century, it was later used as a fortress and its precious Travertine stone and marble stripped to decorated many of Rome's palaces.

2. The Roman Forum

Leave yourself at least a couple of hours to explore the sprawl of ruins that cover the site of the Roman Forum. Building started on the site of an Etruscan burial ground in the 7th century BC, becoming the magnificent central showpiece of the ancient city.

The area was home to temples, public spaces, baths and basilicas and with the help of informative maps and information boards you can still make out the outlines of important buildings and streets, such as the Via Sacra, the Forum's main road and the spot where Julius Caesar was cremated, the Tempio del Divo Giulio.

3. St. Peter's Basilica

St. Peter's Basilica is at the heart of the Vatican City, and is the most spectacular and richest of Italy's churches. St. Peter's is full of beautiful works of art, including La Pietà, Michelangelo's evocative sculpture of Mary and Jesus.

The church took 120 years to construct, eventually being consecrated in 1626. Be prepared to queue to get in and follow the strict dress code of this Catholic place of worship. No mini-dresses, shorts or bare shoulders are allowed in.

4. Vatican Museums and the Sistine Chapel

Also in the Vatican City are a collection of museums containing some of the world's greatest art works. On show are Etruscan bronzes and Egyptian mummies, frescoes by Raphael and works by Caravaggio and Leonardo da Vinci.

Part of the museum complex contains the Sistine Chapel, or Capella Sistina, where one of the world's most iconic ceilings can be viewed. It is well worth being patient to get a glimpse of this fresco which took Michelangelo four years to complete, working from a scaffold in a cramped and narrow space.

5. The Trevi Fountain

The eternal city is full of imposing and playful statues, but the Trevi Fountain is probably one of the most iconic. This fountain is known around the world for Anita Ekberg's dip in the film, La Dolce Vita.

Recently restored, this water feature is an over-the-top collection of baroque mythical figures and wild horses. Tradition states that throwing a coin into the fountain will ensure your return to the city. As an average of 3,000 € a day is tossed into its waters, it is apparent many people hope this is true.

6. The Pantheon

This is one of the oldest and most influential buildings in the Western world, having stood for over 2,000 years. Its magnificent bronze, gilded and painted interior belies the rather drab and pock-marked exterior it shows to the world.

The Pantheon has the largest un-reinforced concrete dome ever built in the world. The Pantheon's massive dimensions are perfectly symmetrical, while its most fascinating feature is a central hole, of nearly 9 meters, in the dome.

Symbolically this connects the temple to the gods, but in reality spreads the load of the concrete roof. The interior marble floor is sloped to allow rainwater to drain away without causing damage.

7. Piazza Navona

This ornate square was for many centuries the site of the city's main market. It is still a popular place for street artists and hawkers to entertain tourists while they relax at a street cafe.

The Piazza is surrounded by old baroque palaces and dominated by Bernini's Fountain of the Four Rivers - the rivers Nile, Ganges, Danube and Plate.

8. Villa and Galleria Borghese

This outstanding gallery contains one of the best private art collections in the world, with stunning works by Raphael, Titian, Bernini and Caravaggio.

The collection was put together in the late 16th century by one of the most ruthless art collectors of all times, Cardinal Scipione Borghese.

If you only have time to visit one gallery in the city, then it should be this one. Tickets need to be pre-booked and you will be given a two-hour slot.

9. The Spanish Steps

Nearly every visitor has their photo taken on the Spanish Steps. Built in 1727, they wind their way up from the Piazza di Spagna to the French church, Chiesa della Trinita dei Monti.

At the foot of the steps is an intriguing fountain, the Barcaccia, also known as the 'sinking boat' fountain.

Taking a seat on the Spanish Steps for a while is a great way to rest your legs and people-watch.

10. Castel St. Angelo

This grim and imposing circular palace near the Vatican was built as a mausoleum for Emperor Hadrian.

Over the centuries it has also been a prison, a papal residence and a place of refuge for popes in times of trouble, being linked to the Vatican City by an underground passage.

Visit its museum and then have a coffee on the ramparts, a great way to view the city.

11. Capitol

The Capital area is home to the world's oldest public museums and contains some of the finest collection of classical sculpture in Italy.

The entrance to the museum complex is through the Palazzo dei Conservatori, where you'll find a courtyard littered with a huge head, hand and foot.

These are the remains of a 12 meter high statue of Constantine that originally stood in the Roman Forum.

12. Trastevere

The narrow alleys of Trastevere contain some of the most photographed washing in the world, because despite its popularity with the tourists, the area is still very much residential.

At its heart is the lovely Piazza Santa Maria de Trastevere, where locals and tourists mingle day and night.

13. Campo de 'Fiori

This square is in the Parione district and used to be a site for races and executions. Today it is home to a busy street market during the day and a popular center of nightlife for youngsters once the sun goes down.

Surrounded by the palaces of medieval nobility, it has always been a place to see and be seen.

14. Circus Maximus

Although there isn't much to see above ground today, the Circus Maximus, where chariot races were regularly held, was enormous, and the largest stadium in the ancient world.

At the height of its glory it was able to seat 250,000 people, a quarter of the ancient city's population.

The original track is still visible in the grassed area today.

15. Mouth of Truth

The Mouth of Truth is a large marble face mask, probably a depiction of the sea god Oceanus, with his eyes, nostrils and mouth open.

It can be found against the wall of the Santa Maria in Cosmedin Church, in the Piazza della Bocca della Verita.

No-one knows the original purpose of this piece of stone but legends have grown up around it. If you are brave enough to put your hand in its mouth, be sure that you don't tell lies, or it will snap shut on your wrist.

16. Knights of Malta Square and Keyhole

This attraction, located on the Avertine Hill, is a little off the beaten track. Look for the sealed door leading to the gardens of the Knights of Malta.

A quirk of fate, or a clever architectural trick, means that if you put your eye to its keyhole you will see the extraordinary site of St. Peter's dome.

17. Orange Garden

We're coming to the end of our trip around the eternal city and this tranquil Garden of Oranges is the perfect setting to relax for a while, maybe enjoy a picnic or take in one of the shows at its outdoor theater.

Saint Dominic named the garden, presenting the monastery here with its first orange tree. Legend says that Saint Catherine of Siena picked its oranges, which she candied and presented to Pope Urban VI.

18. Tiber Island

Tiber Island is a place of mystery and shrouded in legend. It is linked to the banks of the river by the first stone bridge built in the city, the Ponto Rotto, or broken bridge.

Shaped like an ancient Roman warship, the island held a small fort in the middle ages and has always had links with healing.

Its spring is said to hold health-giving water, which was thought to have been effective during medieval plagues.

19. Baths of Caracalla

The Baths of Caracalla sit near the Appian Way and were built by prisoners and slaves on the orders of Emperor Caracalla.

The complex was huge, and its imposing ruins are still visible today. These, along with a fascinating museum, provide us with a glimpse into an ancient world. Originally clad with marble, and covered in bright frescoes and mosaics, these baths would have been used by up to 6,000 Roman citizens a day.

It is worth seeing them floodlit at night, or trying to get tickets to one of the operas regularly held in their grounds during the summer months.

20. Piazza del Popolo

The Piazza del Popolo sits to the north of the city, where three famous streets meet - Via del Corso, Via del Babuino and Via di Ripetta. These streets are home to many high-class shops and boutiques.

This enormous square opens out from the gate through the Aurelian Walls, and was the first sight visitors had of the city when arriving from the north. The Piazza has been remodeled many times over the centuries and is now connected to a park on the Pincio Hill above it by a curving flight of stairs.

The design of this flight gives the appearance of trees and plants cascading down into the square below. The Piazza del Popolo contains an Egyptian obelisk and is surrounded by three churches dedicated to the Virgin.

Zbardhen lidhjet e mikut të Veliajt me Ndragetën, dy kontratat me Bashkinë e Tiranës

Mapo Travel launches a new agency-friendly platform

BARI - A new portal, an area completely dedicated to travel agencies, the possibility of creating increasingly tailor-made products and a series of meetings with networks. So the tour operator Mapo Travel is meeting the resumption of activities, in view of Easter and especially the summer season.

“2021 must be an important year for Italian tourism, and in particular for the southern regions. What is certain, and that we find every day in requests and reservations, is the desire to travel of Italians, increasingly looking for personalized packages. Hence the new platform, a space designed specifically for agencies with dedicated offers, enhanced services, continuous assistance and promotional material always available ”, explains Barbara Marangi, general manager of Mapo Travel.

The Apulian tour operator has already started a series of meetings with networks and travel agencies to present the potential and tools of the portal.

“Our goal - continues Barbara Marangi - is to allow agencies to find and build packages tailored to the needs of the end customer. For example, each structure on the platform is extremely characterized: with a click you can know if it welcomes animals, if it is accessible to people with disabilities, if it is equipped for the needs of people with allergies and intolerances. In short, we have focused on the possibility of customizing the product more and more in depth, for a holiday without nasty surprises ".

Mapo Travel also certifies the first positive results for spring and summer with an excellent start for bookings and encouraging numbers for the Italian sea and the southern regions.

“Our core business is always the sea. In February 2021 we can be very happy with the summer bookings, especially aimed at the structures of Puglia and Calabria. The private villas are also very good, a product launched in 2020 with the aim of giving tourists greater tranquility, relaxation and autonomy ", concludes the general manager of Mapo Travel.
